Gua Sha Scraping Board
Gua Sha has actually been around for centuries in China, where the technique was used to scrape the skin with a smooth stone, antler, or coin to heal the skin through the redness that occurred (sha). The process was used over the entire body, but today it is primarily used on the face and neck.
Many people cite that gua sha gives their skin structure a lifted appearance, with more defined cheekbones and de-puffed cheeks. Gentle use can also reduce under-eye bags. Users say that it relieves muscle tension and tight jaws, and makes their cheekbones and jawline appear more defined.
The technique can also promote lymphatic drainage, which can reduce facial puffiness and help remove fluid and toxins from your system. Some people say that it even serves as an alternative to injectable’s because of its ability to ease the tension that can cause fine lines or wrinkles.
